Pathogen Meteor Barrel Kit
 
I picked this kit up to put on my pumps, seemed like a great value 3 tips and 7 backs for $149.99.

Pros: Nice case
Good useable bores. (sorry cp nobody needs a .697 or .695 anymore)
3 tips and 7 backs for a pretty decent price.
comes with O rings on every thread, so no backs and fronts getting stuck

Cons: Still waiting for my 12" and 16" tips
Machine work was slightly sloppy, various tool marks around the threads.
There was a slight dragging when screwing the halves together.


Moral of the story? I'm probably never ordering from HustlePB again, as this is my second order that was not exactly complete.

As for the barrel, it gets the job done, but its nothing to really write home about.

Would I buy this kit again? probably not. I would just get your stock barrel freak bored by many of the high quality machinists here.

Have you looked down the barrel. The two barrels dont match. most of the backs seemed off center from the tip of the barrel. I sent my kit back to hustle for a refund. I wasnt happy.

Thanks for the review. I was considering this kit. It sounds like looking elsewhere is a good plan

I noticed it too, it is quite bad. Forgot to put that in my original post.

After receiving my refund. I purchased a disruptive 15" with 682/676/679 backs. I will never use another barrel. Build quality. Smooth and clean bore. Quieter then my old deadly winds. Love my dp barrel

The disruptive kit I had was the only barrel kit I ever had that consistently broke paint, and I could never figure out why

As for HustlePB - the fact the kits aren't complete really isn't their fault - and they are one of the few companies that will send out partial orders instead of putting you into backorder hell.

Pathogen kits? for that price point and the quality issues - just seems like they are trying to get rid of their stock to start over and try and get it right the second time.
